Risk Factors For Lower Back Pain

Although it is surprising to some people, driving jobs are considered to be the top ones to cause low back pain. Taxi drivers, delivery drivers, chauffeurs, long-haul truck drivers, or contractors for ridesharing services are at an increased risk of suffering from lower back issues, as they sit in the same position for a long period. Some other risk factors are:

  • Stressful activities, such as pushing, pulling, lifting, climbing
  • Family history
  • Obesity
  • Pregnancy
  • Smoking
  • Injury
  • Fatigue or sleep deficit
  • Substance or alcohol abuse
  • Stress, anxiety, or intense depression

Lower Back Pain Diagnosis

The pain is usually felt in the lower back. You must speak to your doctor and seek a diagnosis in cases where your pain lasts longer than 6 weeks or spreads, in cases where your back pain prevents you from being able to go on with your daily activities, or if you get hurt, such as after an accident or after a fall.

  • Your Queens lower back pain specialist doctor will first do a physical exam and ask you different questions about your symptoms.
  • Your doctor will also ask you about your medical health history and will test your range of motion.
  • Your doctor will need to check how well your nerves work to be able to decide what is next to come.
  • In certain cases, you might also need further tests, such as an X-ray, CT scan, or MRI. However, such tests don’t always need to be useful and can’t always show h why someone is suffering from low back pain or in how much pain a person is in.

Non-Surgical Treatment Options For Lower Back Pain

Identifying the symptoms, along with an accurate diagnosis of the root cause of the pain, is the first step in obtaining effective pain relief. Board Certified Specialists at Precision Pain Medicine – Pain Center can help identify the cause of your low back pain and offer effective non-surgical treatments.

  • Medications
  • Over-the-counter pain relievers, such as acetaminophen (Tylenol), aspirin (Bayer), or ibuprofen (Motrin, Advil)
  • Muscle relaxants for muscle spasm
  • Short-term, less potent opioids (Vicodin, Percocet, Codeine)
  • Oral steroids (Medrol dose pack)
  • Cortisone injections to help relieve pain and inflammation
  • Antidepressants such as tricyclic and tetracyclic may be prescribed for chronic low back pain
  • Physical Therapy for four weeks as an initial conservative (nonsurgical treatment)
  • Using hot or cold therapy
  • Stretching and strengthening your back and abdominal muscles
  • Swimming and water exercises helps with acute or chronic low back pain

  • Ultrasound treatments or electrical stimulation for chronic non-specific low back pain
  • Chiropractic manipulation, massages or acupuncture focusing on relief of spasm in the spine

Gentle exercises. Treating your lower back pain also depend on what is causing your pain as well as where in the back you feel it. Although many people believe that after back pain it is best to rest and stay in bed, this isn’t always the answer. It is much better to follow through with gentle exercise. Gentle exercise can help to build support for the spine, improve flexibility and help to work out the kinks.

Although not all causes of the lower back pain can be prevented, exercise can be very helpful. If you strengthen the muscles that surround your spine and your core, the spine will be kept stable and balanced. Exercise can also help you to have good posture, which can also help to prevent back pain. It is recommended to sleep on the side and use a medium-firm mattress. If you’re a smoker, you should try your best to quit. Smoking can also lead to weakness, aches and can put a strain on your back.

Physical therapy. You can have a physical therapist show you how to properly do different kinds of exercises, which can help you to get relief from the pain and allow you to get moving again.

Over-the-counter pain relievers. If you’re suffering from back pain that doesn’t allow you to move, it can help to take over-the-counter pain relievers, or to ice and heat the area that is hurting you. If over-the-counter medication doesn’t work, it might be necessary to have your doctor prescribe you stronger medicines. However, stronger medicines come with side effects, such as making you drowsy or making you dependent.
